the streets, I’d better stay back at home in peace.”


The Cui family is now in a straitened position, with all the valuable shops in the capital sold, they have come to settle in Lingquan town to do some porcelain business.
Everything is difficult at the beginning.
Money is needed everywhere.
If you don’t save some and spend recklessly like before, wouldn’t they have nothing left sooner or later?


But she didn’t want to hurt her husband’s self-esteem, so she didn’t say anything about being afraid to go out to spend money.


But speaking of this, she got up and took out her jewelry box from the luggage.

There were two banknotes sent to her by her grandfather when she was married.


When she woke up from her serious illness, the other dowries had disappeared.
Only the head-ornaments jewelry and the silver box handed to her by her mother that was kept under her cotton mattress were still intact.
Later, when her husband’s family had difficulties in the business, Cui Jiu never asked for her marriage dowry.


Now, Miantang did not hesitate to take out one of the banknotes and handed it to him.
“I heard from Servant Li that you have bought a new shop in town and your great plans for a grand ambition.
I don’t have much dowry, this shall act as the shares to the shop.
When the shop opens, I can also share some dividends with my husband.”


When she said this, she also made sure Cui Jiu does not lose face.
She can’t just directly say something along the lines of, Husband, you’ve lost all your money now.
I’m afraid you don’t have enough capital, so I’ll supplement you some first.


Cui Jiu didn’t expect her to do so.
He just stared at her for a while, didn’t accept the note, but said, “You’re not afraid of losing all your dowry to the business?”


Miantang saw that he didn’t accept, so she put the banknote on the table and said with a smile: “There are always losses and profits in businesses.
It is unlikely that all the money in the world is only meant for one person to earn? You should use it then to me who lacks knowledge of the business.” She looked at him with a hopeful face, expecting him to accept it.


Miantang is originally beautiful, but if the beauty doesn’t have her thought, it’s just a jade carving without a soul.
And when she smiled, the sense of indifference of an iceberg beauty suddenly disappeared, replaced by a smile as beautiful as flowers.
The two shallow dimples on her thin white cheeks look very sweet, giving the feeling of a naive innocent girl.


Cui Jiu squinted slightly for a moment before reaching out to pick up the banknote, he then said, “Well, I’ll keep it for you first… But you still have to head out to the market.
I’ve ordered some new cloth for you at the clothing store.
Go and have a look.
If you don’t like it, change it to the ones that you like…”


Since it’s an act of consideration for her husband, Miantang can’t decline again, so she nodded.


At this time, Servant Li came to ask the Ninth Master whether he want to have his meal now.
After receiving his order, she brought in the meal with a lacquered wooden tray.


Today’s dishes are all Jiangnan style.
The lotus root slices are fried with delicious fresh meat.
It is golden and crisp.
The dish Beggar’s Chicken emits the fragrance of lotus leaves.
There is also a tofu soup, which is topped with crab roe.
It was very delicious.


Maybe it’s because the owner, Ninth Master had come back.
Servant Li, who usually does a hasty meal on ordinary days, is especially diligent today.


Liu Miantang’s meals are mainly porridge and green vegetables all this while.
The moment she saw the dishes with meat, she then realized that she was craving meat and fish, and ate them attentively for a while.

When the fragrant of the meat went into her stomach and lifted her craving taste at the tip of her tongue, did she only realize that she seemed to have lost her etiquette during eating.
She immediately filled a bowl of tofu soup in a small bowl, acted as the etiquette practiced before marriage, raised the bowl to her eyebrows again, and presented it to her husband for meal.


She has been too carried away.
Back at home before marriage, she was always scolded by her father for eating messily.
Since then, every time she had meals with people, she always restrained herself by 70% percent.


But now she really should not be only caring about herself.
There is not much money left at home now, and it is rare for the table to be filled with meat and alcohol.
Her husband is busy with business every day and must have felt tired.
He is the one that needs to take in extra food nourishment.
How can she eat more when she’s only idling at home?


At the thought of this, she hastily retracted her chopsticks and chewed rice in small bites.


Cui Jiu didn’t eat much and only occasionally took a few servings of each dish.
Most of the time, he looked at Miantang devouring the food deliciously in front of him.


When eating, beauty normally pays attention to elegant manners, such as chewing without showing teeth and drinking soup without making any sound.
It’s a pity that although his wife is beautiful, she eats with extraordinary concentration, wide eyes and cheeks puffed.


However, the kind of concentration devoted fully to eating does not make people feel unrefined.
On the contrary, it lifts one’s appetite.


He originally did not want to eat more, but after looking at her eat, he also took a few more servings of dishes without much thought.
Later, she might have been full as he didn’t see her pick up any dishes again.


The two of them sat opposite each other, and their mind was not fully on eating, so the atmosphere seemed a little cold, and lack of conversation.


After dinner, Cui Jiu rinsed his mouth with fragrant tea and said to her, “There is a new batch of goods at the dock.
I have to take stock personally.
I probably won’t be coming back tonight.
You’ve had a hard time on your journey here.
Have a good rest soon.”


Originally, Miantang had been secretly nervous about whether they would sleep together tonight.
Hearing Cui Jiu’s words, she greatly breathed a sigh of relief.
Her tone was slightly light and said: “Although this is Jiangnan, the weather at night will be cooling.
You should wear thicker…”


Then, she took out a small jacket she had sewn these days and handed it to her husband.
